Forty Schmorty

I had a great 40th birthday! Thank you all very, very much for your comments (27 comments for one entry! a new record!), birthday wishes, and advice on aging gracefully! I loved Dale’s post and I’m glad you guys did, too.

Here are some photos of the things that made my birthday particularly special.

Flowers from my dear friend, Wendy. She couldn’t come to my party because she was sick and I missed her terribly! But, she sent me these gorgeous flowers, so I guess I’ll forgive her. Hi Wendy! Just kidding! Love ya!

Pumpkins for the front door from Dale. I guess he really does listen because I only mentioned wanting to decorate the front door this way once, in passing.

Wearing the finished Leaf Lace Shawl for the first time. It’s so soft and warm! And it matched my shirt perfectly. And I didn’t even feel like an old lady while wearing it.

Dinner at my favorite restaurant.

Having a very special guest at my birthday bash. There were LOADS of other people there, too. Family and friends and co-workers and reenactors and more. Did I get photos of any of them? Nope. Only my gorgeous granddaughter! I hope they all forgive me!

A birthday surprise in the mail from Kathy! Love the yarn, love the pattern and the card is a hoot! Thanks, Kathy!!

And I got a shout out on Jess’s blog and Kathy’s blog, too. Thanks grrlfriends!

So maybe 40 won’t be so bad. I’ve got yarn and friends and family and blog readers and a trip to Vermont for the coming weekend and the best husband a girl mature woman could ask for.

Oh, and tonight? Tonight I’m going here and she’s going to be signing this. Seems like a great way to start off my 41st year!
